The health and health care competency of Americans is critical to the future of the U.S. health care system. To enable a clinically and financially healthy nation, stakeholders must become active in the engagement, education and activation of our society. The Foundation for HealthSMART Consumers, Inc. is dedicated to this work. The Foundation envisions a society of health care consumers who are actively responsible for their own health and confidently accountable for their care. We see a future movement among consumers to “Go Healthy, Be Confident!”
Our mission is “to promote the development of a society of health consumers who confidently and competently take accountability for maintaining and improving their health in active partnership with health care professionals,” and our goal is to enable consumers to make consistently informed decisions about how to consider, choose and use health care resources well.
The Foundation is specifically active on the topic of self-care, which begins with wellness and prevention, includes treatment of self-manageable conditions with over-the-counter symptom relief, and continues into chronic disease and risk management through medication therapy and lifestyle regimens. With an aging population, the predicted shortage of doctors and pharmacists, and the inability to continue the health care cost trajectory, the issue of competent self-care becomes paramount for the U.S. market.
We conduct research to identify and report policy, social and economic trends which may impact the progression of smart health care consumers. We also serve as a communications and education conduit, connecting consumers with appropriate content, and act as a catalyst in the formation of consortiums for collective initiatives.
The Foundation is funded through public and private contributions and through sponsorship for works of research and education. For more information, visit www.healthsmartconsumers.org.

We use a sample of prospective actual users who select and use the study drug the way they normally would if the drug were already available without a prescription. This development model has been used in successful consumer product campaigns both in the United States and the UK. PEGUS also conducts specialized safety surveillance trials and undertakes other research studies which require novel research methods. For more information please visit our web site at www.pegus.com.
